In this guide we will walk you through setting up email in MS Outlook 2013.

Create the email address in cPanel prior to setting up Outlook.

We are assuming you know your email settings, if you don't know them I recommend reading this helpful article that explains how to find them in cPanel.

If you are looking for a guide for a different version of Outlook, here are some helpful links:

How to Setup Outlook:

  1. Open Outlook 2013.
  2. Go to File, then click the +Add Account button.
  3. Click the manual setup option, then click the Next button.
  4. Click the POP or IMAP option, then click the Next button.
  5. Fill in the fields, below is a description of the options.
    Your Name Enter the name you want to display when you email someone. For example: John Doe
    Email Address Enter your full email address here.
    Account Type Select if you want to use POP or IMAP. POP removes the emails from the server and stores them in your Outlook, while IMAP leaves them on the server by default.
    Incoming mail server

    SSL Settings: (Replace the # signs with your server number.)
    Standard Settings: (Replace with your actual domain name)

    Outgoing mail server (SMTP) SSL Settings: (Replace the # signs with your server number.)
    Standard Settings: (Replace with your actual domain name)
    User Name Use your full email address, for example: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
    Password Enter the password you created for this email address.
    Remember password Check this box, so you will not have to enter your password each time you retrieve your email.
    Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) Leave this unchecked.
  6. Click the More Settings button, then the Outgoing Server tab.
  7. Make sure My outgoing server requires authentication, and Use same settings as my incoming mail server are selected.
  8. Click the Advanced tab, and enter your settings. Here is a description of the options.
    Incoming Server

    Below are the port settings for Standard/SSL, and POP/IMAP:

    SSL (POP3): 995
    SSL (IMAP): 993

    Standard (POP3): 110

    Standard (IMAP): 143
    This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) This should be clicked if you are using SSL. Do not click this option if you are using Standard settings.
    Outgoing Server

    SSL: 465

    Standard: 587 or 25 (ISP's often block port 25, so I recommend using 587) 

    Use the following type of encrypted connection
    Standard: None
    SSL: SSL
  9. Click OK, then Next. When the testing completes, click the Close button. When you see a "You're all set!" message, click the Finish button.


Congratulations, now you know how to setup your email in Outlook 2013!
